Extensive rain and a very heavy snowfall (followed by near record breaking flooding) damaged or destroyed many trees. I came to this site to photograph a friend as he worked to clear away this downed tree. The homeowner sure was lucky that the damage wasn’t more extensive!
I’m always saddened when a big beautiful tree goes down.
As I wandered around, taking pictures before, during and after the tree work, I was struck by the colors of the newly revealed wood beneath the bark.
